Funding for Maritime Environmental Technology

The Federation of Norwegian Industries (Norsk Industri) has launched a new initiative termed 'environmental funding’. The proposal aims at giving the maritime industry an opportunity to apply for financial support for environmental friendly technology.

The Federation of Norwegian Industries (FNI) points out that increased efforts with regards to environmental technology is required if Norway is to meet its climate obligations. 

 

Environmental funding

 

The concept “Environmental funding” has been born out of a wish to make the change to environmental technology in the maritime industry more rapid than today. The idea is that ship owners, operators and equipment suppliers may apply for funding earmarked for environmental technologies. 


Lars Gørvell-Dahll, The Federation of Norwegian Industries (Norsk Industri)“We expect that the government have requirements to the environmental aspects in the building of new ships for use domestically. If they do, they also have to offer some kind of environmental funding”, states the director of FNIs maritime section, Lars Gørvell-Dahll in an interview.

 

“Incorporating new technology is not done overnight. These schemes should be long lasting, not only short term schemes made to develop prototypes,” continues Gørvell-Dahll.  

 

FNI emphasises that a strengthened focus on environmental technology will provide great benefits, both for the environment, for the industry, and in addition create a future-oriented export sector. Gørvell-Dahll states that the initiative truly is a "kinder egg", with three good effects.

 

Program for energy measures

Lately there have been several environmental initiatives related to the maritime industry. The thought behind the concept of ‘environmental funding’ is that it will be a catalyst encouraging the gathering of forces and initiatives to reach the desired effect.

 

Enova, a Norwegian public enterprise promoting and funding environmentally friendly energy consumption and generation, is currently working to create the frameworks of a program for energy measures on ships and new transport technologies. FNI has expressed support for Enova’s work. They still emphasise the importance of the program not only covering technology on new vessels, but also the "retrofitting" of equipment on the existing fleet.

 

FNI also state they would like for the investment to cover the development of climate technologies for the suppliers of equipment. In their view this should cover the risk of investments into new technology as well as the development itself.
